Managing time key to night games

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
The first night game in Michigan Stadium history will be the first of five night games for the Irish this season, which is the most in school history.

Brian Kelly is used to kicking off under the lights from his days in the Big East and has a pregame routine down.

"Trying to take part of the day and use it for football-related (issues)," the Notre Dame coach said when asked how he manages time leading up to the game. "Then you want to move your team, you want to get some physical conditioning in of some sort. Get a sweat going, get them moving. And then there's got to be some down time as well. Balancing those three things, and of course football players love to eat, so we've got plenty of food available."
